The way to get a natural AC increase is to raise the Stealth skill. This will go up slowly on its own, but it's worth pumping some points into it. It gives about .4 AC per points.

Don't kill the Crock! He is involved in the plot later in the game and is a good source of XP (not from killing him). Let him live. The stuff in his back room is not worth it.
